Net metering gives Vancouver Island man electricity rebates

From Global News:

A Vancouver Island man says it’s possible to power your home with solar energy and save big money. Neetu Garcha took a tour.

“There’s a 148 panels in total on my property. I know it sounds like a lot, but it’s replacing the electrical needs of 10 people,” said Stephen Gilbert, a homeowner in Metchosin, west of Victoria on Vancouver Island.

The power of going solar is front and center thanks to what Gilbert installed right in his back yard.

“What’s behind me and some panels that are on my home, actually generated enough electricity, to power the cottage and also the house,” said Gilbert.

Gilbert also uses the panels to power up two electric vehicles.
